PoE (Power over Ethernet) technology brings a revolution in the wireless network by providing data and electricity over the same Ethernet cable. With the growing needs of the market, PoE switches with PoE technology are widely produced and applied in business, campus, hospitals and transportation. In this article we will take FS PoE switches for example and discuss what is PoE switch as well as types and usages of FS PoE switches.
What Is POE Switch?
PoE switch is a network switch with integrated power over Ethernet functionality. It contains multiple Ethernet ports to provide power and network communications. When connected with multiple network devices, PoE switch can simultaneously support both power and data transmission over one Ethernet cable, which significantly simplifies the cabling process and cuts down network cost. PoE switch can be divided into many types, such as managed and unmanagd switch, 8/12/24/48 port PoE switches.
FS PoE Switches Introduction
S1150-8T2F managed PoE+ Ethernet switch comes with 8x 10/100/1000Base-T RJ45 Ethernet ports, 1x console port, and 2x Gigabit SFP slots. It can supply power to network equipment such as weather-proof IP cameras with windshield wiper and heater, high-performance AP and IP telephone. This managed PoE+ switch is highly flexible, the transmission distance of the SFP fiber port can be up to 120km, and with high resistance to electromagnetic interference. It also features superior performance in stability and environmental adaptability.
S1400-24T4F managed PoE+ Ethernet switch comes with 24x 10/100/1000Base-T RJ45 Ethernet ports, 1x console port, and 4x Gigabit SFP slots. This L2+ managed PoE+ switch provides a reliable infrastructure for your business network. It delivers more intelligent features to improve the availability of critical business applications, protects the sensitive information, and optimizes the network bandwidth to deliver information and applications more effectively. It best fits for SMB or entry-level enterprise solution which demands industrial, surveillance, IP Phone, IP Camera or Wireless applications. All in all, the PoE switch provides security, performance, quality of services, centrally managed and other network control capabilities.
S1600-48T4S managed PoE+ Ethernet switch comes with 48×10/100/1000Base-T RJ45 Ethernet ports, 1x console port, 4x 10G SFP+ slots. It offers enterprise-class features like high-performance of both hardware and software, stable and reliable RSTP (Rapid Spanning Tree Protocol), free configuration, strong network security, convenient management and maintenance. The switch can automatically identify the connected devices whether compatible with IEEE 802.3af or IEEE 802.3at standards, and then supply power for them. The PoE switch makes it easier to deploy wireless access point (AP) and IP-based terminal network equipment with PoE technology.
How to Use FS POE Switch?
FS PoE switch is mainly used with IP cameras, VoIP phones and WAP (wireless access points).
FS PoE switch offers power supply and data connection to PoE enabled IP camera system via network cables such as Cat5, Cat5e and Cat6. At present, regardless of industry or location, it is often necessary to use a PoE switch for IP security camera to ensure the safety of people and business.
VoIP phone is the most common and original PoE application with a single connection to a wall socket. It can be powered off remotely. With FS PoE switch, only data network cable is required. PoE switch has facilitated business communication and reduced deployment costs of VoIP.
Wireless network is greatly promoted by the usage of PoE. When you use FS PoE switch, installation of controllers and access points is greatly simplified. It is considered to be the most widespread way to build enterprise wireless network.
Benefits of Using FS POE Switch
FS PoE switch supplies power via an Ethernet cable and eliminates the demand for additional electrical wiring. Without it, the deployment will be more knotty. You have to either run a power cable to the area where you want to deploy a network device or deploy network devices based on where existing power outlets are available. Therefore, FS PoE switch gives freedom from fixed power outlets, provides more placement options and allows for deployment in complex environments.
FS PoE switches offer high PoE power budget that is almost double which of the competitors, and they support the 802.3at standard to easily fulfill power hungry PD requirement. Additionally, FS PoE switches are made with high-quality components to ensure stability and durable connectivity essential to PoE applications such as IP surveillance and more.
Now that we have FS PoE switch, there is no need to purchase or install additional electrical wires and outlets. A single cable supports both data and power transmission. PoE solutions also require fewer power adapters. All these lead to dramatically savings on installation and maintenance costs.
From this article, you may better grasp of what is PoE switch and what is PoE switch used for. At present, PoE switch has become a better choice for connecting IP camera, VoIP phones and wireless APs. To get a high quality PoE switch with cheaper price, FS.COM is a good place to visit. In addition, FS.COM provides various gigabit switches for your network demands.
